DONE DEAL: Charlie Austin signs for Brisbane Roar

Charlie Austin has signed for A-League club Brisbane Roar.

The former Burnley and Southampton man was released by QPR at the end of the season and had been in discussions with the Australian side for a number of weeks.

Austin said: "I'm delighted to be joining Brisbane Roar.

"To play abroad is something I've always wanted to do and when the opportunity came up to join this club I was looking to explore it.

"I met the gaffer Warren [Moon] in London and he sold me the project of the football club and it was one I was excited about!

"I want to help the club get back into the top six and on a personal note score as many goals as possible."

It was announced that Austin had signed a 'multi-year' deal.
